A poem for today…

Monday, August 4th, 2008

 

 

PERFORMANCE
 
pretense like an armor
as compliments fall off
adding to the slurry of unclaimed moments
 
intimate challenges
tasted on tongues
in saliva
as the air cracks with meaning
 
dreams are hollowed out
for seeds to be sown
 
connections erased
for new fertile heartlands
 
earthed
 
special moments take on new connotations
and sex like a hardened fist slams home
 
harmony is bitter in the sweetness of the summer air
delicious juxtaposition
the walls sweat expectation
 
something like fear sung like you mean it
wasted like you felt it
